Looks totally mental to me! Never thought of an upright looking craft.

I have to admit it's not an original idea - see the artwork on the first page of the thread.
It's a look which would look good on proper models too (as opposed to my lash-on-stuff-o-rama).

Very impressive, I really like the oddball look of that flyer. Excellent!!!

Nice work. It's got an insectoid vibe about it too.

Thanks guys  Cheesy

Hmm, did you see what happened to that in the last remake of Clash of the Titans....?!  Laugh

After a (for me) marathon Saturday and Sunday of painting it's finished.
At one point I have to say I started loathing it, but now it's done I'm happy enough, although I found many approaches I'd change in any future build. I even filled in some of the not quite rivet holes I'd made - they were ridiculously big. I also realised the cockpit door (the one 3 storeys above ground, the one you wouldn't want to trip on the doorstep of) is (probably) closer to 50mm scale - I got carried away! But that's an easy one - it's narrow for 50mm scale, so I'm calling it 28mm. designed for a singularly tall alien species who make excellent navigators  Cheesy
That's the good thing of sci-fi scratchbuilds - if it were historical I'd have to invoke Area 51. Or the tallest of the Knights who say Ni - those are historical, right?

P.S.1 - now comes the bit I dread most - photographing it!
P.S.2 - @McMordain - you'll get there - I had to rush as I'll be away next weekend; and I want to see your build painted up - I can think of a couple of schemes which would look good and am curious to see your take.
P.S.3 - @DrMathias - oddball is a good way of putting it Grin
P.S.4 - @Elk101 - hmm, now that you point it out, it does. It's been likened to half the animal kingdom by now!
P.S.5 - @Akula - coming from you, that's got me blushing.
P.S.6 - @Mason - for the formal pic I'm including a couple of bystanders admiring the monstrosity. I think you'll find them quite familiar...  Wink

To be honest I really don't like painting big things, like vehicles or terrain. They never come of right... Anywaay, I didn't thought much about a color scheme. Maybe black and red.
